jndicial procedure of their Burgal Courts, are preserrecL In these 
we frequently find various minute details of the passii^ occurrences 
of the day, presenting us with a complete and very livdy picture 
of the civic economy and polity of these early and important com- 
munities. Lawyers and historians have alike complained of the 
doubt and obscurity which rest over the history and constitutions of 
our Boyal Bui^hs, and that so tittle is comparatively known of the 
original privil^es and burdens accompanying each erection. From 
the delapidation which has taken place of the more ancient docu- 
ments, which could alone shed a strong and steady light upon such 
investigation, it is, perhaps, vun to hope that this subject can ever be 
thoroughly elucidated ; but it is a matter of some gratulation, that in 
the more recent records, there are occasional allusions made to ante- 
cedent events, and the contents of ancient writings, no longer extant* 
viiich, when combined, help the inquirer wonderfully out in forming 
something like accurate notions respecting the leading features in the 
early history of these munidpal bodies. 

In the opinion now expressed, I have been confirmed by a some- 
what laborious examination of the earliest Town Council Reocods of 
this City. The fruit of this examination has been the selections given 
in the following sheets, cranprising all that I deemed valuable, or of 
general interest, which is contained in the lai^ manuscript volume 
to be afterwards described. If these eelec^ons should Bore no other

porpoae than m»«ly Erecting the attention of othera to this unbeaten 
field of inquuy, and, peiiiaps, of encooraging them to prosecute it 
with more Buccess, and npon a more enlai^ed scale than my limited 
leienre can now enable me to do, my utmost ambition will be grati- 
4ed. For I am satisfied, that a alight inspection of the contents of 
these sheets, amply justifies the importance which I am inclined to 
attadi to this n^lected branch of our national antiquities ; and, were 
similar selections made, with due discrimination and judgment, from 
the records <^ the other Royal Bui^hs, and Burghs of Regality, scat- 
tered over Scotland, a fiind of curious and recondite matter would be 
amassed, the value of which every person imbued with a taate for 
ardiaiol<^caI porsnits can easily appreciate. Such a collection made 
on a scale of adequate extent, would form no unfitting supplement to 
the labours <^ the Parliamentary Commissioners npon the ancient 
pnblto records of the kingdom ; while in various minute and intereet- 
mg particulars they wonld mutaally illustrate each other. 

It is not saying too mnch for these Records, that they contain a 
tareasnry of antique information, most instructive, novel, and amusing, 
and which cannot &il, in this age of inquiry, to be big^y interesting. 
As illuBtrative of tiie general history of the country, they supply notices 
of many isolated and curious &ots ; and, with r^ard to our ancient 
towns and bni^hs, they afford a fiuthfiil and connected narrative of 
the causes which led to dieir progressive ina«aseor decay, while they 

d by Google 


exhibit a highly fiDished picture of national character in the mannen 
of the day. Although not previoaely adopted as the suliject of publi- 
cation, and, indeed, too' much disr^orded by modeni inquirers, their 
importance to the historian, the lawyer, philologist, and antiquary, 
cannot, consistently with joetice, be overlooked. To the historian, they 
acquire importance, inasmuch as they sometimes detail, or allude to, 
valuable facts, connected with the general affairs of the kingdom, either 
indifferently understood by, or entirely unknown to, our most indus- 
trious and pains-taking writers. 

In the eyes of the lawyer they ought also to be of much value, for 
we^know not any source fi^m which he could obtain so clear an 
insight into the civic government of our ancient towns, as from tlieee 
striking delineations of the despotic and patriarchal rule wbii^ ob- 
tained in these communities. Their modes of administering jastiioe, 
and punishing minor offiences, are fully detiuled in these records ; 
while, as illustrative of uncertain and disputed rights of corporations 
and individuals, they are often of great use ; nor are they of less value 
in settling points of right and practice, in some cases, where oibe^ 
evidence has &iled. 

Preserving, as they do, the colloqiual language of the time in 
which they were written, they are likewise of considerable advantage 
in facilitating the labours of the philologist Some singular words 

d by Google 


oocur in the following Bheete vhidi we have seen nowhere else, and 
the exact meaning of which it has baffled as to discover. In the foot- 
notes a few of these are explained ; but the dil^nt reader will per- 
ceive that many have been left onnoUced, simply because their signi- 
ficaticHi was dubious, and their etymon could not be traced. 

To the antiquary, if a genealogist, they afford many important 
hintSi in framing the histoiy of fomilies and individuals : and to those 
curious in local history, or who have pleasure in tradng the domestic 
habits and manners, and surveying the aspect of sodety as known to 
their forefathers, they present a more accurate and minute portrmt of 
what our fathers truly were, than any species of history or tradition 
has conveyed, and bring us, as it were, into a doser, and, if we may 
be allowed the expresBtoo, into a sort of living contact with the men, 
manners, and opinions of bypast centuries. 

Tliat this is no eoca^erated view of the importance of preserving 
and pnblishii^ excerpts from those bui^ mtmiments, the selections 
now sulMOoitted to the Maitlanu Club, embracing but a very limited 
period of time, will, it is believed, establish the fact, that tiiose of 
Glaf^w are not without interest of a very peculiar character ; and 
the same may be stated with regard to those of other towns, were 
they diligently sought out and transcribed.

It may be neceeeary no7 to mention, that the materiale of the present 
volame are fiuthAil and authentic tranacripta from an immense fi^o 
manoBcript, oonBisting of five hundred and sixty pages, preserved in tlie 
archives of the City of Glasgow. lliiB manuscript contains the vfaole 
transactions of the Hf^strates and Town Council of &e City : the 
Elections of their Ma^strates and other office-bearers, from the Lord 
Provost down to the c(Hnnion Menstral, the Cowherd, and ihe Pindar } 
the Inquisitions held by the Ontlandemers at the Courts o( Peram- 
bulation, for fixing the mardies and boundfuries of the Burgh ; the 
Chaise and Discbai^ and Exoneration, of the lYeaaurer ; and 
the Judicial proceedings of the Barg|) Court of Gla^ow, from the 
year IS'^S till 1581. The manuscript is in excellent preservatiMi, 
and has been transcribed, with much care, upon strong Lombardy 
paper, probably a portion of the stationery whidi belonged to the 
Church and Chapter of Glasgow at the R^nnation. 

Eariier volumes were, aboot the middle of tiie last oentnry, in 
existence, and though these have disappeared, it is not impn^iable that 
some p<n7tion of them may yet he recovered. Gibson, in his history 
of Glasgow, appears to have had access to some not now known, for 
he quotes entries as early as the year 1566, a period so pr^nant 
widi momentous changes in Church and State, that their loss now 
cannot be too much deplored. Prior to the Reformation of BeligioD,

the muniments of thia description are, from all that I can learn, 
exoeedin^y scanty in any part of Scotland, and even subsequent to 
that period* in some Burghs, they hare not been preserved with that 
care wfaidi would hare been deurable. So &r as r^ards this City, it 
is not improbaUe that, from the dose connexion between the Bui^ 
and the Archbishop of Gla^ow, as its feudal superior, the earlier 
Tolomes of its municipal records were deposited along with those of 
the See, and when the latter were conveyed by Archbidiop Beaton to 
France, those of the dty may have shared the saine iaSe. 

With the exoeptii<m of a few chaans aAairards indicated, there is, 
from the date of this volume till the present day, a r^^ular series of 
tlteee curious mem(nials of early times extant, and the care with which 
they have been prea^ved, certainly honouraUy distinguishes this City 
amoi^ the Royal Burg^ of Sootland. 

Hie following is a statement of the jnvsent state of these Records : 
As already observed, the first volnme commences in 1573, and termi- 
nates in 1581. The next b^ins in 1588, and ends in 1596» thus 
leaving a space of seven years nnacconnted for. Another space occurs 
frtMU the hitter date till 1609 ; snbsequently from l6l4 till 16S3 ; and 
e^ain from 1630 till 1636. With the exception of the volume con- 
taining Uie Minutes of 16^ till 1654, which, it is believed, will be 

d by Google 


recovered, tile Reowds are cfMDplete from 1636 till Uie preset time, 
and form fifty-two rolames foolscap folio. 

In maldng the following tranBcripts from the earliest rolume above- 
mentioned, I have been jnindpally guided l^ the wish, to present to 
the readw, as nearly as possible, a correct view oi the molti&rioas 
matters it contains ; while, on the other hand, the intrinsic impor- 
tance of some of the articles, as peculiarly oalcolated to illustrate 
points <tf general and local history, graphic pictures of andeot man- 
ners, and sketches of the mode in which jnatioe was administered 
by om* ancestors, it is hoped, has not been oreriooked. To a nibch 
greater balk tiie volume might have been swelled ; but in that case a 
redmidancy <^ identical incidents, and similar acts, would have been 
accumulated, which, while it detracted from the interest of the work, 
would not, in any shape, have added to its value. A simple ref<»«Dce 
to the varied contents of the volume, and a comparison between these 
and the manuscript from which they have been selected, will not only 
sanction the opinion now ex|n-essed, but establish the fld^ty with 
whidi, both in substance and form, these extracts have been made. 

It would be almost endless, as it would be next to an act of super- 
erogation, were I to particularise the numerous interestii^ facts and 
allusions which occur in the fi^owing sheets. Of one thing all most 

d by Google 


be awBre, that in them many matters connected with the early history 
of this City are detuled, which could not have been obtained fivm 
any other source. Some of tlie rights and privil^s of its Corpora- 
tions, the modes of electing the FroTost, Magistrates, and Town 
Council, and several not unimportant dianges in the coustitulion oi 
the Bui^, are also explained. 

In the reign of James the Third, anno 1469, the Act was passed, 
abolishing Uie popular election of Provost and Ma^strates in the dif- 
ferent Bmghs, and vesting the power in the Old Council to choose 
the New, and these two, combined, to appoint the Magistrates and 
other officers. The necessity of this Act being passed, is explained 
by the Act itself; and, although Pinkerton may designate it "the 
first germ of despotism, ill understood," * no person, except he be 
ttnotured with his superabundant partizansfaip, can. under a consid- 
eration of all the circumstances of society at that period, maint^n 
that it was uncalled for, or that in its operation it was injurious to 
the general interest of the communities, for whose better government 
it was passed. 

Waiving, however, this question, whidi I have only alluded to for 
the purpose of mentioning, that in these transcripts we may still 
descry some traces of the more popular mode of election at the An- 
nual Head Cour^ bi the case of the Town's " Menstrales," At page 14, 

* Hirtory of Scotland, VoL I, p. 271.

we find the following «atry: "Tlie Menstralei oontinewit qahill 
the Symeiiiill, quhen the haiB communitie sal be present to geve Aair 
voti* thairanent" and* accordin^j, on the 20th of June, l^T^i ^t is re- 
ceded that Archibald Bordland and Bobert Doncane are " admittit 
to be Menstrales to the Towne fen' this instant yeire, and to half fira ilk 
fbeman allenerlie, bat meyt, twa sdiiUings money at the leist, w*- the 
mair at the gerai's pleaso'." 

^nce the Burgh has discontinued the services of its Hinstrales, the 
shadow of popular election has also disappeared. That the remem* 
Ivanoe, however, of their andent privil^es had not entirely gone, we 
think is obrious from the formal, and somewhat pathetic, supplicaUon 
made by the ccnnmuntty against the ** deling" forth of the common 
muir, " to the great dammage of ns, the haill towne, and our eftir 
cumeris," inasmuch as the same document sets ftHlh, that these c(Hn* 
mon lands were required for the ** pasturing of gnddis for the nstan* 
ing of <^- babies." * The deliveranoe also upim thu supplication and

advisement," is by " the siudis provest, baillies, oomiBale, deakonis <A

gesses are bewailing the spoliation, or misappropriation of their alleged 
common property, we find that a friend of Archbishop Beaton, in the 
following letter to that distinguidied ecclesiastic* {wesents us with a 
striking view of the rapacity for which the prevailing factions of that

It tbtu (^pean, that the " commnnitie ** of the Cit7, who wen so 
anxious for the intereBts of their aAercomers, and Uie sustootation of 
their own babes, were, in fact, quarrelling among fliemselTes about 
the ^propriation of proper^ to vindi they had no titie, or certamlj 
one of a very questionable diaracto*. 

Reverting to the proceedings of the Annual Court, or meeting of 
the inhabitants and freemen at the Symerhill, it is to be obserred 
that the enactments then and there passed by the " haill commnnitie,** 
f^ipear to have required the consent of the FlVToet before they became 
valid. This is established by the entry, page 57, where it is added, 
after some regulations are agreed to, that " tfair to be resonit befoir the 
Prorest, and gif he consentia thurto, to be condudit and endit nther- 
wayis nocht.** 

In the proceedings of the Bnigh Court for the trial of dvil and 
criminal causes, there are points «^ch must interest not merely the 
professional man, bat the general reader. Some li^t is thrown on 
the trial by Jury ; and, it is believed, that distinct traces of the ap- 
proximation to the system of England, even in civil causes, can be 
discerned. In the number of those who passed upon the inquest, 
there seems to have been a great latitude exercised, althou^ it would 
appear from the earUest notice extant upon this subject, in r^erence

to GIb^ow, the precise number was twelve,* agreeing, as that does, 
with the practice of almost all the Teutonic nations. 

In the example, however, eJTorded to us in the manuscript from 
which the present volume is compiled, there does not appear to have 
been an^ fixed rule followed, and, from our inspection of other records 
of a similar kind in other Bm^fas, so far as the number of the inqnest 
is concerned, the same laxity and capriciouaness has apparently 
obtmned. The criminal causes tried in the Courts of the Burgh, 
resonble, in their general features, tbat class of minor offences 
whidi, in the present times, are discussed before the Police Magis- 
trate. And an idea o( the Police of these times, and of the firequent 
breacbes of the peace in the streets at fiurg or markets, when every 
citizen was a soldier, and wore a whingar, or sword, at bis thigh, may 
be formed from perusing the Statute, page 18, which ordains Uiat 
every boodiholder shall have in readiness within his booth, *'ane hal- 
bert, Jak, and steilbonnet* for eschewing," as the same ordinance 
observes, " sick inconvenients that may hi^in." No wonder that, 
with such a turbulent populace, the Scottish Parliament found it 
neoessaty to abridge the freedom of the denizens of these Royal

Several of the offences rise to sometlung like lese majesty, «Bpe- 
cially where the " gceit and haynous crime" is committed, of offering 
Ti(deQce, by word or deed, to the sacred character or person of ** ane 
Bulie," or other municipal dignitary. In these cases we find the 
laws against such *' crying iniqiuties " are uniformly moat rigDroosly 
enfiiroed, and the delinquent, besides having his freedom cried down, 
lumself mulcted in pecuniary damages, and being su^ected to inoar- 
ceration, and forced to make a palinode on his bended knees, and 
thereafter banidied the town, is compelled, in order to avert a severw 
punishment by " his awin confessioun," to consent, should he ever 
venture, without permission of the insulted Mag^tracy, to appear 
within the limits and liberties of the Burgh, to lose hU " rycht hand," 
or even his '* life but dome." 

An instance of the assumption of the powers t^ a Judge Ordlnaty 
by the Deacon of the Smiths, we hare at ya^e 19, for the reprewifw 
of which illegal assumpticm on the part of the crafts, it required, we 
believe, an Act of Parliament. 

A }deaung picture of the taste and pie^ of our uioeetor^ and a 
beautiful contrast to the stem and unrelenting desire of the early 
Reformers to efiace every vestige of the ecclesiastictd edifices then 
erected, are exhibited to us in the zeal shown by the Magistrates, 
Deac(His of the craft, and divers other men of repute of the town.

describee it, " had cum to greit delraye and ruj^e, thro*- taking awaye of 
the leid, sklait, and wtiier gray*- thairof, in this tniblus tyme bygane," 
in the volantary imposition of a tax for its reparation. Such men

Toted its TOTenues for the noble purpose of renovating an institution 
destined to foeteo* and protect letters, and to fiicilitate the instruction 
of yonth. In reference to education, there will also be found, in the 
Tolume, some notices regarding the " Grammar Scale," and the estab-

■ tempts to control the turbulent tongues of the gentler sex. 

Respecting the cleanliness of the City, and the state of public health, 
at that period, the contents of the present volume afford no very invit- 
ing new. L^rosy appears to hare been so common, that at the head 
courts a regular list of those afflicted with this loathsome disease was 
delivered to the Magistrates, who ordered the sick to an hospital spe- 
cially set apart for their reception. When butchers slew cattle on the 
streets, and the proprietors or tenants of houses had a dungstead at 
their very thresholds, the prevalence of pest and of other diseases is 
not to he wondered at. In framing the statutes and ordinances for 
the better government of their own community, and for the enforcement 
of general cleanliness, the Provost, Baillies, and Coundl, seem to have 
shown no little legislative sagacity. Of these civic ordinances rarious 
specimens are given ; but among the most important, peiiiaps, may be 
ranked the r^ulations which were framed at the visitation of the Plague, 
in 1^74. Our Boards of Health, at the present day, under the afflict- 
ing dispensation of Cholera, have not, it is believed, ever drawn up a 
more judicious, prease, and ccmprehensive body of instructions and

orders, thaa was done to avert, or mitigate, a similar calamity nearly 
three hundred years ago. 

la the Treasm%r*8 accounts, fiwm which copious excerpts are 
t^en, it may be remarked, that the fiill revenue of the Community is 
stated, without any concealment or reservation, and with equal can- 
dour the various items of its expenditure are detfuled. It is true, the 
Magistrates, and " divers honest men," occasionally treat themselvra 
to a dejeune ; but this is after the completion of some public business, 
tending to the honour or profit of the commonweal. Indeed, the 
class of disbursements which, strictly speaking, are the least l^al, the 
most rigid corrector of abuses could not well object to. I allude to 
the numerous benevolencies bestowed upon poor scholars to buy them 
a suit of clothes, or books, to enable them to prosecute their studies ; 
the sums voted to shipwredced mariners, — to ruined merchants, who 
had lost their horses by some untoward accident, or to the widows and 
chUdren of those Burgesses whom unforeseen calamities had plunged 
into abject want. Not a little of the public funds is sometimes 
devoted to ransom unfortunate Bui^esses from captinty among the 
Turks, while considerable sums are expended in providing medical 
assistance for those afflicted with physical infirmities, or who have met 
with severe bodily injuries. This exhibits a kind and paternal sympathy 
with the sufferings of the poorer or unfortunate classes of the com- 
munity, exceedingly grateful, to every liberal and humane mind, and

leads one to r^ard, with something more than respect, Uiat social 
iabric of municipal goTcrnment which the msdom of our ancestors 
reared and consolidated with so much care. 

In the accounts of the Treasurer also much curious matter may be 
elicited regarding the pastimes and sports of the people ; the divers dis- 
borsementfl for " futballis " are not unworthy of notice. We also meet 
with payment made to a piper, called " Ryall Dayis," and to " a fule 
witii a treyn swerd," as well as to " certane yonge men of the tonn to 
thfur playing" — probably bearing a part in some masque or public 
pageant The care bestowed on the decorement of the Town's " Men- 
strales " is evinced in the entry of the purchase of bine doth to make 
two coats for them, with as much "cramosie" as would serve for 
conttuning the' town's arms thereon. Nevertheless, though this care 
was shown for tiie recognized Minstrales of the Bui^h, the profession 
had thus eariy follen into disrepute ; for in ihs ordinance anent the 
Pest, " pyparis, fidleris, and minstrales " are unceremoniously classed 
together as vagabonds, and threatened with severe penalties, ^ould 
they venture to enter the City, in contravention of the Act. 

Many other curious notices occur, illustrative of social manners, 
and national peculiarities ; but I must content myself with directing 
attention to one, namely, the " propynes " given by Uie Magistrates 
to their friends and illustrious visitors. It will excite astonishment.

the enormons quantity of wine " propyned " to my Lord Provost, to 
the Earl of Argyle and his Lady, the Lords Lennox, Lyndsay, Rothes, 
Angus, Arbroath, Boyd, Glamis, and other distinguished Noble Lords 
and Ladies, for their good offices, patronage, or protection. 

These cursory remarks I must now bring to a close ; and, in doing 
so, I feel myself particularly called upon to notice the beneficial assist- 
ance I derived, in the pn^ress of the sheets of this volume through 
the Press, from William Motherwell, and James Hill, Esqtiires, 
Members of the M&itland Club. 

To the ingenuity of James Hardie, Esquire, I am indebted for 
Casts from the impressions of the Seals formeriy referred to. 

I have also to adaiowledge the ready access a£Forded me for refer- 
ence to Uie manuscripts, by my hi^y esteemed friend, James Reddie, 
Esquire, Advocate, Principal Clerk of the City of Glasgow, and Cus- 
todier of its Records, and for the polite attention with which that 
gentleman, on all occasions, furthered my inquiries.

with the fish and the ring alluded to in the le§;«ndary story of the miracle of St. Ken- 
t^em, which is thus detailed by Spottiswood : " They report of him, tlud a Lady of 
good place in the countrey baring lost a ring, which her husband gare her, as she 
crossed the river of Cbtj/d, and her husband waxing jealous, as if she had bestowed the 
same upon one of her lorers, she did mean herself unto him, intreatiog his help for the 
safety of her honour; and that he going to the river, after he had osed his devotion, 
willed one who was making to fish, to bring him die first that he caught; which was 
done ; in the mouth of that fish he found the ring, and sending it to the Lady, she was 
thereby freed of her husband's suspicion. The credit of this I believe upon the repor- 
ters ; but howsoever it he, the See and City do both of them wear in their Armes a fish 
with a ring in the mouth even to this day." Appended to the copy of a Charter in the 
Cartulary of Glasgow, Vol. I. p. 273, occurs the following description of the above Seal : 
" Huic cartn appensom e. sigillnm ex cera alba int^mro ex nna parte Epiacopnm
